One of your favorite hobbit duos from The Lord of The Rings, Merry and Pippin, are coming together for a brand-new podcast. Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd have just announced a weekly podcast with Kast Media called The Friendship Onion, and yes. It is about The Lord of The Rings.
The Friendship Onion is a space for Monaghan and Boyd to tell stories, trivia and more from their time making The Lord of the Rings films. Fans of the series will love to hear the duo “as they peel back the layers of their experiences, both in real life and from the screen.” Other members of the cast and crew will make appearances for interviews, the two will answer fans’ questions and more on this new venture. Check out the teaser trailer below!
The Lord of The Rings stars commented on the new project. “I am contractually obliged to make a glowing comment here in regards to the podcast Billy and I are making together. This is proving difficult as Billy has abducted me and is holding me for ransom to the price of 44 bananas. PLEASE, SEND bananas,” said Monaghan.
“Dom took a little persuading, it’s true, but this podcast is going to rock! He is such a joker, you have to love Dom! Ha….but you also have to love bananas, so….yes! send bananas,” said Boyd.
The Friendship Onion will be available on Youtube, Spotify and Apple Podcasts starting on Tuesday, May 18th, 2021, and episodes are set to release weekly. The Youtube channel is up now, so subscribe and set your reminder now!
